    I'm an admin and ex-owner. I get my .02 just like other folks with shelter access.

    I will start a different thread on that subject because we need a whole lot fewer admins and mods as well as no special access for ex owners.

    Back on topic, are still ignoring those three posts with questions or do you intend to actually anwser one today?

    That is what you are degenerating to now? You delete the question and then try to make a joke?

    I believe that the totality of gturners posts were to troll via derailment.

    No.

    Captain X made a statement, not a question. Much like I told you, you don't have to like the answer but it is the answer. Captain X saying he doesn't believe it isn't a question.

    And, as my original response to this post of you said:
    As I laid out in the OP:
    You have not met this metric and you continue to just brush it off. If you can't come up with any substance to this, you need to suck it up and eat crow, and the current admin staff needs to stop listening to your faulty reasoning and reverse the ban. :bailey:

    So you have absolutely no evidence just "I feel" statements. You can't even prove your own claim that he broke the retarded, made to be abused, "don't be an asshole" rule! :lol:

    Oh, that is f'ing beautiful! Why not just come out and say you had nothing instead of lying and pretending for two pages? :lol:

    So given that you cannot, in any way, support your claim that GTurner did break the "do not be an asshole" rule do you have absolutely any other justifications/excuses for your abuses/actions? Mind you, this would be the fifth excuse you guys have come up with as the others have all either been disproven or you have been unable to support with any, and I mean ANY, evidence at all.

    Perhaphes we should here from the actual owners as well as the other mods as Anc has been such a complete and total failure at justifying this ban? I want it on the record that they couldn't come up with a single plausible reason for this ban beyond "we didn't like him even though he never broke a rule". I would also like them to tell all of us why they think that is fair and not just the petty partisan abuses which half of Wordforge left because they feared something like this would occur when the four horsemen took over.

    Here, lemme save you some trouble

    From the horses' mouths, from the Shelter discussion we had. That's about as close to hearing every mod' s opinion as you're gonna get.

    Funny that seven out of 13 votes were for unbanning him! :lol:

    My math is a little rusty but isn't that a majority even in the cluster fuck you guys have where 2/3rds of the board members get to post and vote in the secret forum? I expect him unbanned forthwith. It also goes to show that six of you are unfit to be mods as they want to ban people who never broke the rules just because they don't like him.

    Try reading the thread.

    That said, even if the poll were valid the Shelter is not a democracy. It's purpose is to get opinions and talk through decisions and their repercussions.

    I'm going to also point out that 1 of the 3 owners has stated he thinks this thread has run its course, which was liked by a second. I'll keep it open a bit longer but will close it tomorrow most likely. Get any good questions in otherwise get ready to move the complaining to the Red Room.

    And the only arguments I've seen in favor of keeping him banned amount to: "if we let him back he'll be an insufferable asshole" and "fuck that guy." Actually it seems to be that the consensus was to lift the ban up until Anc and gul chimed in.

    Considering that this thread is now 6 pages long after the closer of the last one (which was closed for the same "reason"), no, you aren't going to be able to use this excuse about this subject matter being over. You have still failed to do what I asked in the OP, and locking this thread will only prove my point for me, which is that you banned someone simply because you didn't like them, and you're too petty and too intellectually dishonest to admit to your mistake, let alone to correct it.

    I completely agree. 1) GT was coming back until ANC and Gul crapped all over the other people. 2) The total count still favored unbanning GT. 3) Gul is no longer a mod largely because of the b.s. they did to GT.

    Have a vote with anyone who has a conflict of interests (I.E. was a deplorable involved in this abortion) recuised.

    Anc has been trying to lock, block, or derail any discussion of this matter and that is what he is still doing. They locked the last one because supposedly there was nothing to say, they shit on everything in the red room because that is how they avoid real discussion, and this is transparently obviously what he is still doing now.

    Hell, why has he STILL not anwsered 2/3rds of the questions I put to him just today? Why isn't he giving time for @Paladin and other posters who have shown strong interest in this topic to weight in? Why hasn't he given time for other mods to weight in as several us have requested?

    There are almost no locked threads in this entire forum. Go ahead and look. Why the dramatic change in policy just for this topic?

    Given that you cannot justify what you have down I would guess you are now just trying to cowardly block this subject in hopes that it goes away. Just as you have done several time before. That really shows your lack of character. Maybe you will prove me wrong but I doubt it, just like I doubt you will ever get around to answering those questions.

    Welp, as the original question has been answered (multiple times now), the one interesting discussion over with and this thread has devolved to simply complaining and insulting, time to close.
